If you are finding this week's work difficult then try the consolidation activities below instead. Remember that to find the perimeter, you must ADD the length of each side together.
If you are finding the area of a shape you must MULTIPLY the length by the width of a shape. Your answer should be in mm, cm or m squared.
To calculate the area of a triangle, multiply the base by the height and then DIVIDE your answer by 2.
You can also check your answers to see if they are correct.
